Jurisdiction in Adult Guardianship Proceedings: An Overview of North Carolina's New Legislation (UAGPPJA)
Clerks, Attorneys, Judges, Judicial Branch staff
At the end of the 2016 legislative session, the General Assembly enacted complex legislation (H 817) that made significant changes to the way the Clerks of Superior Court will determine jurisdiction in adult guardianship proceedings. The new law incorporates the provisions of the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (UAGPPJA), which is designed to ensure that jurisdiction for these proceedings is located in one and only one state, except when an emergency exists or in situations where the individual owns property in multiple states. The new law also addresses issues such as transfer of cases and out-of-state recognition of guardianship orders. During this webinar, the speakers will review some of the key provisions of the new law with a particular focus on how the new law will be integrated and applied with existing North Carolina law.
